  • yeah i really love those doctors that dont call back.. lol.. go get a different doctor and just so you know he wont be able to help your through the phone. ;) go to the doctors office if you cant stand the pain.

    i was constipated for almost the whole pregnancy. There wasnt really anything i could do about it though. Because I always ate lots of fruits ect, so this didnt help.
